A new home for Blandford Art Society’s Annual Open Exhibition


Formed in 1972, Blandford Art Society is delighted to announce its annual Open Exhibition, a must-visit event for local art enthusiasts. It will be held 14th to 19th August, from 10am to 5pm daily, giving visitors ample opportunity to explore and immerse themselves in the
artistic offerings.
The venue for this year’s exhibition has changed to The Blandford School (DT11 7SQ). This fantastic new space not only allows for a broader display of artwork but also offers the added advantage of free parking.
The collection has been carefully curated to include pieces not only from the Society’s members but also from talented artists around the county. The diverse styles, techniques, and themes promise to provide something for everyome to enjoy.
In a collaboration with The Blandford School, the Society will also showcase work from young, emerging artists from the school itself, with the aim of nurturing future talent. Each year, a bursary is awarded to the most promising pupil, giving them a tremendous opportunity to hang and sell their work, and reflecting the Society’s commitment to fostering the next generation of artists.
Come and browse at your leisure – if a particular piece catches your eye, you may wish to purchase it and take a piece of the exhibition home with you.
Refreshments will be available, allowing you to pause and reflect on the art while enjoying a delightful treat. Members of the Society will also be on hand to provide insights and background on the displayed works.
